LA-based producer Edward Vigiletti (VIGILETTI) makes dance music with a narrative, using only an instrumental—usually one that clobbers you over the head with its screaming synthesizers—to extract certain emotions from the listener, or in the case of his latest single, “nameless,” loosely reflect on a personal experience.
Picking up where his earlier singles “Dripping” and “Black&Blonde” left off, Vigiletti’s newest entry sounds like the soundtrack to a moonlit evening that somehow finds you half-concious in a latex-covered dungeon. His official vocal debut, “nameless” is grounded in a deep, nearly demonic voice that repeats the ambiguous line, “I need you,” over electric clubby production.
“I started to write the track in the middle of a pretty encompassing relationship,” Vigiletti said. “While I’m only saying ‘I need you,’ that’s really all that was going through my head in that moment—this somewhat impulsive desire for someone even when they’re a poison in your life. This might seem a little much for just another dance track, but for me it’s important to create through your experiences; that’s the only way I know I can connect with it.”
